Review

Our Score
Despite returning to Las Vegas where the series began, Steven Soderbergh's second sequel to 2001's Ocean's Eleven fails to rediscover the sheer insouciance of the original. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and the rest of the cast reprise their roles as the charming conmen, who this time target the hi-tech casino of ruthless Vegas businessman Willy Bank (Al Pacino). The strength of the series was always its breezy enthusiasm, but here there's a chronic lack of fun: Pacino barely gets out of first gear, while Clooney seems to have his mind on other things. Only Ellen Barkin appears to be enjoying herself, shining in a comic role that sees her dosed with potent pheromones and seduced by a heavily disguised Matt Damon. Apparently there won't be an "Ocean's Fourteen"; clearly, Soderbergh's under no illusions that Ocean's winning streak has dried up at last.

Summary

Danny Ocean rounds up his band of crooks for one last heist. Gang member Reuben has been left traumatised and in a coma after being double-crossed by crooked casino owner Willy Bank, and Danny decides that payback is in order. He plans a scheme that will leave Bank penniless, but needs the help of an old enemy. Comedy crime caper sequel, with George Clooney, Al Pacino, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia and Elliott Gould.
